New Version Computer Science Carnival
CS Education week is designed to encourage and create awareness around computing, which is an essential skill as important as reading and arithmetic. Computational thinking practices help students to problem solve and think critically. Teachers can use the new version of the Computer Science Carnival document, which includes accessible activities, during CS Education week to create excitement in elementary and middle school students for learning computational thinking skills. We encourage teachers to engage students in these activities and participate in CS Education week, which takes place the first week of December. Sign up at csedweek.org
